The College, each school, and the Graduate Division conduct commencement ceremonies for their graduates. Ceremonies feature addresses from distinguished speakers, and recognize candidates who have achieved high academic distinction and honors.

Check with the College, school, or department for eligibility requirements, programs, and time schedules. Commencement information — including the schedule of ceremonies, maps and parking, and updates — is published online. Doctoral hooding ceremony information is also published online.


Names of students who request that no public information be released do not appear in commencement ceremony programs. Students may change their privacy status on MyUCLA.
